We have some really exciting news. We will be moving the academy to a much bigger location in one month. Starting 7/13/15 Renzo Gracie Jiu Jitsu will be at 1901 Shotgun Rd. It is a bigger location with a much bigger mat and now we will also have a lounge room that will be matted and have couches and TV as well. This way you can watch technique videos and practice them right there in that room or just relax before or after your class.
We will also have a video camera in the lounge room so that way when kids are playing in there, parents can supervise their activities from the Jiu Jitsu viewing area on a closed circuit TV
There will also be several really nice amenities that I am sure all of you will really enjoy.
Time to start thinking about what you are going to do for Summer Camp 03/17/15… Read More
Time to start thinking about what you are going to do for Summer Camp for your kids. Many of our parents have been asking if we are doing it again this year and the answer is of a resounding Yes! The kids love it and we have a great time with them every summer.
Camp starts this year on June 8th. We meet every day at a local park so the kids can get about 1.5 hours of outdoor play everyday before it gets too hot out. Then there is jiu jitsu every day (their skills skyrocket over the summer), alternating days of CrossFit or Kickboxing, as well as games and arts and crafts. Once a week we have a pizza party as well as a movie theater outing in our shopping center that we pay for both.

We have had phenomenal success over the past month in our competitions. Whether it was CrossFit or Jiu Jitsu, our members either medaled or else they hit personal records. Well done everyone! And excellent job to their team mates for pushing them and challenging them which was instrumental in bringing their level up to where it is today.
The holiday season is upon us so make sure you get your training in. It will aid you in keeping your stress levels down, keep your body fat down and your dopamine levels up which makes everyone around you as well as you happy 🙂

There are a lot of us getting ready for tournaments in the next few weeks.
There are 3 bjj tournaments this month, a CrossFit competition next month and some of our Muay Thai members are looking for some fights in the near future.
I can feel it and I think it’s pretty obvious that the intensity of our training sessions has kicked up several notches. Nothing like the thought of pitting ourselves against another human being to get the motivation to train at our full capacity 🙂
Get on in everyone and take advantage of the energy in the training rooms.

Some great news and some very bad news. Unfortunately our team mate and Muay Thai Coach Bobby Diaz has to move back to Massachusetts. We will miss him terribly because he added so much to the academy and really helped improve our Muay Thai program. Luckily though we have found a great replacement. Markus Wolters, a kick boxer and teacher from the Netherlands has agreed to replace him. You will see that this is our good fortune. Where I thought it would be impossible to replace Bobby, we have again found someone excellent.
Come on in and enjoy the teaching style of Markus. He has created several champions and will continue his high level of teaching here at the Renzo Gracie Training Center full time.
Next week is back to school week for everyone. It’s an exciting time as well as obviously 08/13/2014…Read More
Next week is back to school week for everyone. It’s an exciting time as well as obviously it can be a very stressful one. To help with that parents make sure you still get your workouts in or else you may have no way to let off some of that steam other than some mild mannered screaming at family members. Not something we want for ourselves or for our kids to associate school with.
Now for the kids who just came off of a summer of fun and relaxation they often have a tendency to try and jump onto the couch to watch tv or their iPads after school. Don’t let them develop those bad habits. Get them back on schedule and come on in and train.
We are looking forward to seeing everyone back on the mats.

It will be a blast. We are meeting at 9am Saturday promptly at the beach.
We will be at John U. Lloyd park by parking lot #2. Park in lot #2 in the most southern portion of it.
